They plan to take the Green Challenge thrown by KTR to his followers. Rao took to Twitter on Thursday and requested his followers to plant a sapling each. "A request to TRS party leaders and other well-wishers those who would like to greet me, kindly plant a sapling, if you can, as part of 'MukkotiVruksharchana' or Gift A Smile in your own personal way by helping some in need. Please don't splurge money on bouquets, cakes and hoardings," he said on his Twitter account.
The Minister will donate 100 custom vehicles to differently abled under the Gift a Smile initiative on his birthday. Gift a Smile, a novel initiative started by him on his birthday last year, continues to do well, this year as well. He will be celebrating the birthday and the initiative has again gained momentum as he Tweeted.
"Last year on the eve of my birthday, I had personally donated six ambulances and our TRS MLAs and MPs joined in taking the total number to 100! This year too, decided that the best way to celebrate is to #Gift A Smile in personal capacity to 100 differently-abled with custom-made vehicles."
